Nominal Fee for Prospective Client
It is highly recommended that you invest in an initial consultation if you have immigration issues which may require legal help. The initial consultation gives us an opportunity to review your situation with attention to determine the available course of action and to provide you with an honest assessment of the likelihood of success of your case before you retain Reggie Smith Law firm.
Each case is unique and a careful evaluation of your immigration matter by an immigration lawyer is essential. We will request certain documents and information to be compiled and brought at the time of our meeting, such passport any other document that may be pertinent to your case.
A first-time immigration consultation of up to one hour with the attorney Reggie Smith is $200.00. In some instances, the initial consultation fee will be credited toward your legal fee if Reggie Smith Law is retained within 30 days of the consultation.

At the end of the consultation, you will have a clear understanding of the steps that will be taken to ensure a successful resolution of your case.
